in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is
-known authority of this body, the united states senate, is likely to be the advise and consent pri provisions. constitution. article 2, section 2, with the advice and consent of the senate the president shall appoint ambassadors and others. and there are about 1, 100 of those that the president appoints. and two years ago and then just last week we streamlined the confirmation process a little bit to narrow the focus on the most important appointees and make it easier to get them confirmed. so those are the checks and balances that the constitution meant to establish. they did that so that we would have liberty from a tyrannical executive branch, which is what the founders were worrying about, and the court is as that i had that the president exceeded that. thertherefore, these two memberf the nlrb should resign immediate lid and pack their bags and go home with our thanks for their hard work despite the fact that the cases they voted on ought to all b be vacated. a new sign needs to go up at the national labor relations board. take down the sign that say, open for business. put up a sign tha
rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb
respect the prerogatives of the united states senate and the members of congress, you represent the american people, you're the other branch of government, you have the right to know what took place. and i have an obligation commensurate with the, you know, regulations and classifications and privacy and other things at play here, to help you get the answers and we'll do that. i hope we can do it in a noncontentious, appropriate way. >> thank you. could i just mention, i think you would aee with me that every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. so there is, it seems to me, a very strong impetus that we realize that the present policy is not succeeding and to look at other options to prevent what is going on for now 22 months and 60,000 dead. >> but i think you would agree with me that whatever judgments you make, they have to pass the test of whether or not, you do them, they're actually going to make things better. >> absolutely. >> you have to make a test of the cost analysis in doing that. and i mean all kinds of cos. human life costs, treasure, effect on other countrie
of nebraska in the united states senate i cast over 3,000 votes. hundreds of committee votes. i have also a given hundreds of interviews and speeches and written a book. so as you all know, i am on the record. i am on the record on many issues, but no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me. my beliefs, my record. my overall world view has never changed. that america has and must maintain the strongest military in the world, that we must lead in the international community to confront threats and challenges together. and take advantage of opportunities together. that we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. >> i want to bring in dana bash from capitol hill along with fran townsend who's back with us here. dana, give us a sense of the mood and tone in the hearing so far. do we think he's doing well in terms of convincing critics that he's the guy for the job? >> he's certainly trying. but he definitely has critics on a whole host of issues. we knew that going into it. they are not being shy about voi
would be deemed not serious are the media will fail the united states senate. in a proposal to restrain growth is immediately deemed not serious in washington d.c. term limits are deemed nonserious in washington d.c. kept in federal clothes by the federal budget but private sector economy also do not serious in washington d.c. the truth is anything serious is deemed not heiress washing to d.c. and then senator obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing up because the national debt was outrageous a train dollars. i want to quote the president because he clarified for effect $8 trillion. under president about our national debt is over $16 trillion climbing, larger than our entire economy and he's not worried at all. indeed, he caused the progress. remember his campaign slogan? have got news for the president. if washington's guidance going forward, america's economy is going backwards. instead of managing government, it's time to address how we can make america to please her she can once again become the land of upper charity, a place of opportunity. we should put
to run through a couple quick stories on the upcoming electoral battle in the united states senate due to a few retirement announcements. here is a headline from "politico" -- the washington post column has -- the other change is a story in the washington times, possible contenders -- i want to wrap up this segment, will the u.s. on the world stage with tim from rockville on our independent line. caller: good morning. we keep forgetting about america's longest war and that is the war on drugs and how many people it has killed because of influence onceful the rest of the world. i don't understand why that is forgotten and how many billions and trillions of dollars that we spend to support mexico's federal police and their army as well as all the other countries that support by our money. we keep forgetting about that war. that is a 40 + year war. host: do you see it ending anytime soon in the future? caller: if the united states starts treating it as medical science treats it, as a medical problem and not a problem -- we just keep killing people because of our influence. i think we shou
in charge of world affairs? >> i like chuck hagel. i served with him in the united states senate, but he's the wrong man for this job. >> gretchen: why? >> well, his positions on everhing from a nuclear iran to direct negotiations with state department designated terrorist organizations like hamas, his embrace of these naive ideas like a nuclear free world, which, you know, is fine to say i hope and i wish and i pray that it would be that way burks it's not realistic and it's naive, particularly among the person who is supposed to represent american national security and keep the peace. and i worry that president obama has picked senator hagel because really the defense department is the only part of the government that he seems to be willing to cut. he's not really interested in reining in spending in almost any other area except national security. he said the sequester, which is the $1.2 trillion in cuts that are scheduled to go in effect, which disproportion athlete affect defense spending, the president said during the campaign, ain't going to happen of the well, it's going to happen
hope is that as the president and his advisors look at the united states senate, they see, number one, a willingness to solve a problem of fixing the debt in a bipartisan way. i get the feeling they don't believe that about us. i don't know what else we can do to cause them to believe that. there is not the same kind of comfortable relationship back and forth that there should be. i've heard some people say well, the johnson-dirksen days, that was ancient history. that is ancient history. that was a long time ago. but madam president, human nature doesn't change. human nature doesn't change. not in 50 years, not in 100 years, not in 500 years. and there is plenty of goodwill here across the aisle, on this side of the aisle, at the beginning of this term, to work with a newly inaugurated president to say mr. president, we're ready to fix the debt, provide us the leadership, no great crisis is ever solved without presidential leadership in the united states, and you're the president, you're the only one who can lay out the plan. then we'll consider it, we'll amend it, we'll argue about
involved want to get out ahead of the president of the united states to lay out their vision. the balance, if you will, in terms of a pathway to citizenship along with enforcement. here is one of the key republicans making his point. >> the president wants to go and basically chart a difficult path. and what i have heard about what he is going to say, he is going to say there is no lead to link a pathway to citizenship to border security. excuse me, mr. president? the last time we provide ad pathway to citizenship and didn't secure our border was in 1986. i'm not going to do that again. >> reporter: as it is there is no guaranty the bipartisan proposal would pass the house of representatives. they have work ahead trying to sell the house on it but, it if you take enforcement out of the plan the feeling up here on capitol hill it will be a no-go in terms of bipartisan support, patti ann. patti ann: mike, people see this as kind of a unique opportunity, a good time to strike on this issue? >> reporter: no question about that. post-election the feeling is this is the time to strike. the amer
know, i know a senator from the utah who wrote a memo to the president of the united states after he got elected and said this is a nixon goes to china moment for you. >> which senator from utah would this have been? >> the junior senator. >> which president would this have been? >> the newly elected one. >> i see. >> instead this is the nixon goes to china moment for you. because if you can be the first democratic president in history to say we have to do something about entitlements, you can build enough political capital that you can then do whatever you want in health care or environment or energy or anything else. >> so there's momentum building for something big? something to solve the problem. i want to hear you talking to one another about what that would be. >> the business community, i believe, let me just say would applaud this. in fact, if we knew that there was a real bipartisan push for infrastructure spending, it might help us keep two factories open. however -- >> really? >> absolutely. because it would be -- it would be work. it would be work. we need tractors. we ne
